BREAKING: Minister Of Information, Lai Mohammed, Laughs Hard At The Threat By Terrorists To Kidnap And Torture President Muhammadu Buhari, Any Moment From Now, Says It Is Propaganda, And “Security Challenges Will Come Anywhere In The World”

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has on Wednesday, laughed off the threat by terrorists in the country, to kidnap and torture President Muhammadu Buhari, any moment from now Page 36 learnt.

Recall, that the armed Fulani bandits terrorists who kidnapped some passengers from the attacked Abuja-Kaduna bound train on March 28, 2022, recently threatened in a released viral video, to kidnap the President, as well as the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai.

The Minister briefed State House Correspondents, shortly after the weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting presided over by the President, calling it mere propaganda.

He however, gave indications that President Buhari would be hosting a Security Council meeting on Thursday, in view of emerging threats to the country from terrorist groups who appear to be emboldened since the successful jailbreak at the Kuje Correctional Centre, in Abuja.

The Minister also gave indications that the Federal Government is considering asylum for a number of Cameroonians wanting to take refuge in Nigeria.

Lai Mohammed, who spoke on behalf of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, said exactly: “The issue of the standard operating procedure for asylum seekers from Cameroon is not a matter that started today. The issue of the separatist movement in Cameroon is many years old, and everyday, because of the proximity of Cameroon to Nigeria, we have witnessed an influx of refugees seeking asylum, and under international regulations, there are certain procedures you must take for asylum seekers.

“So, all we have done today is to establish the standard procedure to ensure that those who claim to be asylum seekers are actually not insurgents themselves that have come to destabilise Nigeria, or people who will come and be launching attacks against their own country from the comfort of Nigeria.

“On the security situation. I want to assure you that the President is aware of all these, and as a matter of fact, I think tomorrow there is going to be another Security Council meeting. So, it is not a matter the President is taking lightly, and like I will always say, some of the measures we are going to take are not measures that you can discuss openly here, but we are as concerned as you are, we are not going to abandon our responsibility.

“As to those who have issued threats to Mr. President, I think it is more of propaganda than anything. It is laughable.”

Meanwhile, in reaction to the impeachment threat from the National Assembly to the President, giving him 6 weeks to overhaul the Security architecture, Lai Mohammed stated that as rightly said, it was passed when we were deliberating, but we thank them for their patriotism and their concern, but we are working round the clock, 24-hours, to ensure that the situation is brought under control.

He stated: “I want to reassure you that the government is up to the task of ensuring security. Security challenges will come anywhere in the world, the important thing is the fact that you do not lose focus and you continue to work assiduously to overcome it. I want to assure you we are going to overcome.”
